It's funny, because the first time I heard someone say Camelites, I asked
"The nuns?" (the North Alabama pronunciation of Carmelites being something
like, although not exactly, /k at rm@laIts/).
> And if those Southerners were visiting Boston, any reference to those
religious groups would be interpreted as a discussion of the order of
sisters devoted to Our Lady of Mount Carmel, i.e. the Carmelites, no
relation to the Scottish Presbyterians Thomas and Alexander Campbell.
